10 Common Wedding Party Questions, Answered
Consider these points when choosing your bridal attendants.
1. How many bridesmaids should I have?The traditional formula is one bridesmaid for every 35 to 50 guests, but this is not set in stone. So if you have a lot of sisters, a bunch of close cousins, or a tight group of friends, feel free to include them all. Once you’ve pulled your crew together, take them to lunch so you can explain what you’ll want them to do―host a shower, for instance―and why it’s important to you.
2. How do I choose dresses for my bridesmaids?Employ the guidelines you used in picking your dress―formality, time of year, and so on. Say you’re wearing a ball gown; your bridesmaids should be in something equally formal. Or if you’ve chosen an eyelet dress for a garden setting, your crew should wear something relaxed.
You can cater to different body types by:
- Allowing bridesmaids to choose their own styles. Pick a designer, a length, or a color scheme, then let them do the rest. (Find extraordinary selections at threaddesign.com, ariadress.com, and lynnlugobridal.com.)
- Concentrating on wearable colors (black, navy, brown) and flattering shapes (A-line, scoop neck), especially if your heart is set on identical outfits.
